Federal Aid to Public Schools. Bulletin, 1922, No. 47
Swift, Fletcher Harper
Bureau of Education, Department of the Interior
Herein is a companion study to the report on "State Policies in Public-School Finance," published as Bulletin No. 6, 1922, which was written with a view to summarizing the most significant conclusions resulting from a series of comprehensive investigations of public-school finance made by Doctor Swift and others in 11 different States. In the present study, Doctor Smith reviews the development of the policies adopted by the Federal Government, from time to time, in dealing with the problem of public education, including land grants, per centum grants, loans, royalties, and conditional and cooperative grants of money. It thus furnishes a basis of facts essential to any consideration of what is involved in current proposals for Federal grants in aid of education. As a concise statement of just what the Federal Government has done in the past to encourage and promote public education through grants of land and money, this report will be of great value not only to educators but to all students of government and of public policy. An index is provided. (Contains 18 tables; individual sections contain footnotes.) [Best copy available has been provided.]
